The pill? - February 10th 2010, 02:54 PM

I'm tempted to go see my doctor to see if I can go on the pill for my period pains, I get exceptionally heavy periods that last from 5-12 days, during this time I am in pure agony, close to throwing up and have no energy at all.
I also get very bad PMS for about a week-week and a half beforehand.
In your opinions do you think it would be worth going to the doctors and asking what can be done?

Definately. A doctor would know what to do for you. The pill would lessen your periods, and help lessen the pain. and regulate them. Also you'd be protected from unwanted pregnancy. Your doctor could prescribe you stronger pain medication to help also!

Take care.

Most Definitely! A contraceptive pill would definitely help to lessen the periods and reduce the pain. They won't help with PMS though :]

And as Tayla said, if they are super bad you could be put on some good painkillers :]


I'm still alive.
Must have been a miracle
It's been one hell of a ride
Destination still unkown
It's a fact of life: If you make one wrong move with a gun to your head
You better walk the line or you'll be left for dead.


I'm a runaway train on a broken track
I'm the ticker on the bomb that you can't turn back
Thats right.
I got away with it all and I'm still alive.
Let the end of the world come tumbling down.
I'll be the last man standing on the ground
As long as hot blood runs through my veins
I'm still alive.

The pill would absolutely alleviate this pain you've been having. I would advise you to sleep a lot more than you have--that is, if you haven't been receiving enough sleep. Reduce any amount of anxiety you've been potentially having--take it easy on your body when it comes 'round to your period time. Give in to your cravings! Haha now I'm starting to babble. Hehe, sorry


I want to get inside your mind;
I want you to expand mine.

Why not ask to go on medication just to make periods weaker? I was on something like that, I can't remember the name for it, but it made my periods lighter and the pain go away.

The pill, for me, made me fat and angry

Yeah it'd definitely be worth it. The pill's helped regulate my periods and there's a new pill that's just come out where you only have a 2-day break so you'll only have a 2-day period.

However, since being on the pill my PMS has gotten worse so you might have to try out a few in order to sort the PMS out but it's different for everyone.

It's something beginning with a Q...

I can't remember the name and I googled to try and find it but I don't see anything. Ask your doctor, I'm sure they'll know.

Hey,

I'm not a doctor but it sounds like you have PMDD. Premenstrual disforic disorder, I'm not sure if that is the correct spelling. There are pills that work great at regulating that, but some are differnt then the regular pill.

Good luck.


Life is to short to put it off anymore
You gotta live it before itís too late
I canít turn that clock back around
On what youíre dreaming about
You better do it now, donít wait

Do something crazy and dumb, while your still young. <3
